Match Report


East Stirling can have no complaints. They had as many chances as Clydebank but, unlike the visitors, they failed to take them. Clydebank played fast, precise football and scored five spectacular goals. Their first came from a deceptive McCallum lob which dropped behind Davie.

Inside left Moy, Clydebank's star man, scored a tremendous hat trick. His first came in 34 minutes. Then he shocked Shire by netting again seconds after the interval, and he notched his third in 66 minutes. Russell scored number five.

Shire's only goal was scored by Mitchell just before half time. Carlyle substituted for Shire when Gillespie was stretchered off with a leg injury.
